Students who use Metrorail, Metrobus, and DC Circulator to get to school and school-related activities need to obtain a Kids Ride Free Program SmarTrip® card.

Beginning October 1, 2018, students will no longer be able to use their DC One Cards to access public transportation. The new card is separate from students' DC One Card.

If you did not have an opportunity to attend one of the Kids Ride Free Events and would like to request a Kids Ride Free SmarTrip Card for your student, please complete the KRF Request Form. Please note, this form is only for students who attend Alice Deal Middle School. We are unable to issue cards to any student not enrolled at Deal. Visit kidsridefree.dc.gov for more information, or email naima.chambliss@dc.gov with any questions.

Weekly Bulletin

Principal's Message:
December 9, 2018

Thank you to all of the members of our community for buying trees and wreaths during our Holiday Greens Sale. I truly appreciate the support of our students and families who volunteered.


It was great to see Deal families at EdFEST yesterday! EdFEST provided an opportunity for  families to learn more about the educational options in DCPS. Thank you to Mr. Moore, Mr. Rottman, Ms. Maples, Ms. Alphonse, Ms. E. Brown, and Mr. Donaldson for taking the time to share Deal's programs with interested families.

STAR Framework

Mayor Muriel Bowser announced the launch of the first annual DC School Report Card and School Transparency and Reporting (STAR) Framework. The STAR Framework includes multiple areas of school performance, including PARCC results and growth, re-enrollment, chronic absenteeism, and graduation rates, when applicable. These points are totaled for the school overall and for each group of students, including students' race/ethnicity group, students with disabilities, English Learners, and students who meet the city's definition of At-Risk. The result is the school's score (up to 100 points) and a rating from 1 to 5 stars.
